    The only name I recognised was Jerry Rice mate. There was a couple of others mentioned but I can't remember them.

    It was LT and Deion Sanders that said it, and the other boy beside Bennett on this pic. You might find the footage somewhere, it wasn't long after this pic...

    Cheers mate, I'll have a look round because I'm interested to see who they think was better. Brady isn't finished yet either!

    Yeah I was surprised to hear it myself. They did say that in an All Time Team he would definitely be starting QB, but couldn't put him on top on his own.

    'Someone' Smith rings a bell? Hope you find it mate as I wouldn't mind seeing it again too.

    I've honestly never even heard of him, but after having a look on wiki he did have some career. On the NFL top 100 list they did in 2010, he was ranked #31.

    Lawrence Taylor, Jerry Rice, Joe Montana, Jim Brown, Reggie White are my guesses at some of the players they might have mentioned who would be in the argument. Brady has surpassed them all for me though. He stands alone as No#1. Just consistently winning for 15 years with different teams and not even top level WRs or RBs either. He's ridiculous!

    He is one of my favourites, I bought a 1985 throwback Bears shirt with his name on it after watching his football life episode. Sweetness was the best RB of all time for me.

    Brady isn't the greatest player of all time. He's not even the greatest QB. Hell, he's not even the most talented QB playing in the league right now. He is an all time great though, it would be futile to deny that.

    I would imagine some of the names that would have been mentioned in the above footage would have been Jim Brown, Lawrence Taylor and Jerry Rice.

    So that was probably the greatest/most impropable sporting comeback I've ever witnessed. Certainly the best since Liverpool/The 2004 ALCS. You can never ever count out the Patriots but I did think it was over during the 3rd quarter, Brady had no help from anyone and with awful protection and drops a comeback looked impossible. Somehow though he took it to the next level, the recievers and backs started actually playing and the D made some plays. The 4th quarter and particularly the drive in OT was maybe the best quarterbacking I've ever seen. Brady was throwing absolute darts the whole time. I have no idea what Shanahan and Quinn were doing on offense with the constant throwing, especially after the Jones catch in FG range but I'm not complaining. I think once they punted there everyone knew what was coming, momentum is such a huge thing in a game like this. Credit to the Falcons they played well for 3 and a half quarters but that was the most epic chokejob of all time.

    Brady being the GOAT isn't in doubt anymore, as much as it will pain a lot of you to admit it. Go Pats.

    Aaron Rodgers may be more talented but I'd take Brady every day of the week and twice on Sundays and anyone who says they wouldn't is flat out lying.

    Have to agree, there are a few more talented QB's but I would have Brady all day long, I said as much as I hate the Patriots I cannot wait until he chucks it because he is untouchable at times.

    So you're a mind reader then? Impressive.

    You'd rather have Brady and that's fine. I'd rather have Aaron Rodgers.

    Imagine being Tom Brady. I mean, really, imagine being him.

    I know I've mentioned it before too, but the coverage of NFL is just so fuckin good. Through Sportsmania and TuneIn radio, the Jets app and YouTube channels, it really is something else :50: Would have loved to experienced what it must be like to be a proper fan over in the US. I don't know enough about it to play fantasy or that but I will definitely be tuning in to the combines and taking more notice of the draft next season

    Playing fantasy is actually a great way to familiarise yourself with the players around the league. Once you have players in your fantasy team you start looking out for what they're doing and just by doing that you get to know other players at the same time.

    He's in the argument of greatest player of all time and with his 5th Super Bowl win, for me and most others he is now the greatest QB of all time.

    What would he have to do for you to call him the greatest? What else is there to do?
